Briefly:

  • At Constitution Daily, Lyle Denniston reports on the latest appeals-court filing in the entry-ban case, noting that “[t]he Trump Administration’s legal team indicated on Wednesday that it will take the heated controversy over immigration back to the Supreme Court if government power to exclude foreign nationals is not restored shortly by a federal appeals court.”
  • In an op-ed at The Hill, Jonathan Scruggs wonders which side corporations will take in the upcoming First Amendment case involving a custom-cake baker who refused to supply a cake for a same-sex wedding; he maintains that “this moment will offer great insight into the current state of our free speech culture, both corporately and generally.”
  • In an op-ed at The Daily Caller, James Gottry urges the court to review a similar case involving a florist, who “faces the loss of everything she owns because her personal exercise of conscience has been recast as personified discrimination.”
